info reqd for new movie

Hi, i decided tp post up a new thread so if anyone wants to help its here. My introduction can be found in the new members hello/shout.

I'm looking for the following.

Photos of DAK POWs en route to USA, in US camps, on US farms & community.or web links to any.

recommended reference books. I have the new Fisher photo book, but need something meatier.History/collections, military illust, AK.One good book is all i need.

Re the removal of the soutache, how enforced was this? By the time DAK were taken prisoner and shipped out to US (Late 43?) were all soutaches removed?

Type of tank most commonly used by DAK 1942/43 in NA? and how many crew? usual rank of crew, ex driver? Any peculiarities to that combat uniform or field alterations?

source for repro uniform and boots..and best caps?..anyone making small runs here in UK?

also repro insignia...and a little more info on the 288 patch/unit. Thanks in advance...Elvis Davis
